The official release date for “Assassin,” Bruce Willis’ final movie as previously announced, has been announced.
Bruce Willis’ last announced movie, “Assassin,” has been given a release date. Willis gained fame with his role in the sitcom “Moonlighting” and went on to become an action and drama star after his leading role in the hugely successful 1988 film “Die Hard,” starring in popular movies such as “Pulp Fiction” and “The Sixth Sense.” In March of last year, Willis’ family revealed that he had retired from acting due to a diagnosis of aphasia. A recent health update disclosed that he has also been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia.
According to Collider, Assassin will be released on March 31st in theaters and on VOD simultaneously. The release will coincide with the release of the fantasy film Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves that same weekend. This could be a good alternative for audiences seeking something other than a family-friendly movie.
Here Is Everything We Know About Assassin
Assassin belongs to a series of relatively low-budget action movies that Bruce Willis starred in during the late 2010s and early 2020s. Other movies with a similar style include Midnight in the Switchgrass, Fortress, and Vendetta. The film marks the directorial debut of Jesse Atlas, who co-wrote the screenplay with Aaron Wolfe, based on their 2017 short film Let Them Die Like Lovers.
The plot revolves around a futuristic technology that enables people to carry out covert missions using a microchip that allows them to inhabit other people’s bodies. Bruce Willis portrays Valmora, the leader of the organization that utilizes this technology. The cast of Assassin also includes Dominic Purcell from Legends of Tomorrow, Nomzamo Mbatha from Coming 2 America, and Mustafa Shakir from Luke Cage.
It’s uncertain if Assassin will attract a large audience given Bruce Willis’ appearance in around twenty comparable movies since 2020. Nonetheless, the fact that it is his last known project in the works could elevate its significance compared to other movies in the same genre. Fans of the actor may want to pay tribute to his career in the entertainment industry by watching what may be his final film release.
